In the final days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use project at 94-47 – 94-49 Alstyne Avenue, in eastern Elmhurst, but plans have changed now that a new developer is in control, Jian Yun Lui’s Forever Estate, LLC. New filings call for two multi-family residential buildings, each standing three stories and containing three units. The units will spread across 6,248 square feet of residential space, which translates into the average unit measuring 1,041 square feet. Chang Hwa Tan’s Tan Architect is the applicant of record, and permits were filed this past September to demolish the existing two-story house.
Back during the Great Filing Frenzy of September 2014, YIMBY reported on applications that were submitted for a new development at 149 Church Street, on the corner of Warren Street, in Tribeca. And now we have the first two renderings of the project, now known as 30 Warren Street, as well as word that a teaser website is now live with additional details.
YIMBY happened to pass by Pitkin Avenue in East New York over the weekend, and noticed a collection of townhouses nearing the finish line at 402-424 Shepherd Avenue, right next to the Shepherd Avenue C train stop.
While two megaprojects, Astoria Cove and Hallets Point, inch toward reality in western Astoria, smaller developers have begun to eye the little peninsula that juts out into the East River, just south of Astoria Park. One such builder, Dr. Baldhevai Patel, hopes to build a six-story mixed-use development at 23-36 4th Street, between 26th and 27th Avenues.
Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Ozymandius Realty and Orange Management’s planned eight-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 75 First Avenue in the East Village. Now, the long-time owners are selling the site to Colonnade Group. The site allows for an eight-story, 35,000 square foot building with retail, but it’s not known whether the new developer intends to follow the previously filed plans. The previous owners began assembling the site in 2005, when a 14-story building could have been built, before the city downzoned the East Village in 2008, according to The Real Deal. NO Architecture designed the old proposal.
